There have been lots of rumors and predictions coming in for the iPhone 7 and many of them came from reliable sources. And looking back at Apple’s history of launching iPhones, many can take a guess at what upgrades to expect. This has made it easy to lightly pencil in the rumored specs onto a sheet to get an idea of what the 2016 iPhone will have in store for Apple fans.
According to Know Your Mobile, iPhone 7 series may sport the same displays as the one on 6S series – 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch 3D Touch screens. The upgrade could quite possibly be a QHD display with bumped up resolution to 2560 x 1440.
The processor is speculated to be upgraded from A9 to A10, but the lower-end model in the series is rumored to house an A9 processor.
If Apple keeps up with tradition, there is bound be a radical change in the design of iPhone 7. It is speculated that the new device will be sleeker than its predecessor.
The snappers will boast of amped up features, with the front facing 5MP camera supporting wide angle lens. The primary 12MP camera is expected to arrive with 4K video capturing capabilities, like its predecessor and at the same time also feature optical image stabilization.
This time around hopefully, Apple will do away with its 16GB model and directly bring to the scene 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB variants.
Since Apple will have to keep up with industry standards as many Android phones are speculated to be arriving with 4GB of RAM next year, the iPhone 7 may feature a 3GB RAM.
7. iPhone 7 Mini
There might be an addition to the iPhone 7 series. 9to5Mac got its hands on an investor note, wherein KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo shared that the Cupertino tech giant may also announce a 4-inch iPhone. It is being unofficially dubbed as the iPhone 7 Mini and may house an A9 processor and not possess the 3D Touch, to differentiate it from the top-of-the-line devices in the series.
The iPhone 7 is widely rumored to be waterproof. A recent Apple patent has only fueled the speculations further that the upcoming flagship could be waterproof. However it is noteworthy that there was not a peep about the device being waterproof or dustproof in Kuo’s note.
iPhone 7 is expected to be launched during the company’s annual fall event next year, while the 4-inch iPhone 7 Mini is rumored to be arriving in the first half of 2016.
